Dr. Elliot Frohman, professor of neurology and ophthalmology, led a research experiment on people with multiple sclerosis that demonstrates that increases in heat increase the severity of an eye-movement disorder called internuclear opthalmoparesis (INO).
“Eye test peers into heat-related multiple sclerosis symptoms” on the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center web site describes the experiment which was published in the March 25, 2008 issue of Neurology.
Dr. Frohman serves as the Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Clinical Center at UT Southwestern.
